Route 66 isn't truly a sport pattern, but it is long, making it extremely challenging. The length of the pattern and the condition of the lanes gave it a nice area to play in. Missing left or right typically meant convertible spares, rather than a dreaded washout. I was able to play in the middle, standing roughly 25 and playing out to about 12 at the break. This held for the first game and a half before having to make adjustments inward. Thankfully, it was easy to adapt to via moving 2 and 1 over as the lanes broke down. While I don't have too many notes for this week, let it be known that spares are crucial. I missed way too many, causing a loss of over 75 pins throughout the entire series. If you take a look down low, you can see where that impacted me the most. Remember, spares, spares, spares!!!
